In the 285th episode of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if there are any SEO practices that you need to keep in mind before a domain goes live to the public.
The exact question was:
Hey guys, a car dealer client of mine has been getting a new website built, and they're just about to push it live to the domain. On your guys advice I made sure they would perform proper redirects from the old links. Beyond that, is there anything I should do once the new website goes live? I have a Power Shield in place for this client, and I just bought a few MGYB link-building and embed orders aimed at the ID Page, RYS, and GMB. Do I keep going as usual, seeing as the domain is the same?
